My experience with treating OCD:

I have over 10 years of experience working with courageous people, treating the severely mentally ill within hospitals and inpatient care. I've treated adults and teens for OCD, as well as trauma, PTSD, and bipolar disorders. I use Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy because it's proven to work. Having used exposure techniques before arriving at NOCD, I can attest to its incredible effectiveness in helping people with OCD get better.


About Me

Everyone has secrets. Everyone feels shame from time to time. As your OCD therapist, I will walk with you as you go through accepting your unwanted thoughts and feelings instead of fighting them. I specialize in both OCD and trauma, so I've seen many cases of people struggling with mental health challenges. I've also seen many people overcome them. I support your bravery because it's not easy to go to therapy. I'm here to help you gain confidence and to live the most rewarding life that you can. I'll do that by being authentic and recognizing who you are as a person. Together, we can get you to a place where you can live freely without OCD dictating what you should and shouldn't do.

I love NOCD. My therapist has really taught me a lot in a short amount of time despite being diagnosed 6 years ago. I think all the services they provide are wonderful and I’m so grateful I found them.

Logistically and administratively speaking this is the by far the best medical experience I ever had - from my initial engagement to first session this is best in class!

Barbara did an excellent job identifying OCD traits in “real-time” from a new event i was experiencing. This quick identification has added needed clarity to my experiences.
